Red City Radio (Red Scare)
If, as the saying goes, life is less what happens to you and more how you deal with it; Red City Radio have succeeded in spades, insatiable in their heart and singular focus.
The Last Gang (FAT Wreck Chords)
Reformed by vocalist-guitarist Brenna Red and drummer Robby Wantland the pair developed the sound that would become The Last Gang, a mix of tough-as-nails punk and bouncing melodies. As they rotated through bass players, the band quickly found themselves being asked to contribute to the Rancid tribute compilation Hooligan’s United. But due to some email based mishaps, they’d be under a time crunch. “We found out we were gonna be on it the day before the deadline,” says Red. “Long story short, we learned and recorded the song in one day.” But that one song—and the music video that accompanied it—would be the jumpstart the band needed. Before long, they’d find a permanent bassist in Sean Viele, and The Last Gang would hit the road, a handful of releases, and become a more dominant force than ever before.
Petmedz is a melodic punk rock band that hails from Goleta California. Playing the local circuit since 2012, the band has built a solid resume opening for punk legends: Agent Orange, Lagwagon, Strung out, Stalag 13, Suicide Machines, Swingin’ Utters, Face to Face and Unwritten Law.
